to the president of the united states during the debate? it was deeply disrespectful. tonight, the over the line attacks on this president. >>> and stop the freakout. bill campaigns for the president as new poll numbers in key states bring good news. team obama and look who's stumping today. >>> plus, mitt romney is running away from views on women's issues that he held way, way back earlier this year. today he canceled his appearance on the view and sent his wife instead. just wait until you hear how she deen fended his record on women's rights to choose. they actually think this is going to work? okay. you're watching "politicsnation" on msnbc. ♪ i look at her, and i just want to give her everything. yeah, you -- you know, everything can cost upwards of...[ whistles ] i did not want to think about that. relax, relax, relax. look at me, look at me. three words, dad -- e-trade financial consultants. so i can just go talk to 'em? just walk right in and talk to 'em. dude, those guys are pros. they'll hook you up with a solid plan. they'll -- wa-- wa-- wait a minute. bobby? bobby! what are you do

'm the president of the united states, we're going to rein back the regulations. we're not going to expand regulation. >> burdensome regulations serve only to restrict freedom and imperil enterprise. >> you see, last night as i watched the debate, many people that i work with, many people that i know in and around the country, were worried about whether the president was on his game. i was being ensuggested when someone can tell me something for 18 months and then tell me in one night the complete opposite, and i'm not going to get offended, when someone can tell me they're going to deregulate and then come back and tell me they're going to regulate, someone's going to tell me they'll take health care, they don't care about people with pre-existing conditions and then change it, when someone stands up and said i want state's rights on health care and everything else, women, minorities and others will hear health care and other things under states' rights and knowing we suffered under states' rights, no, others can talk about whether the president was on his game or not and maybe he wasn't.

.t.a.r.t. treaty and united states senate. there are a lot of republicans running around down here criticizinging president obama but the man that they are defending was one of the few people that in america thought that we shouldn't have a s.t.a.r.t. treaty with russia to reduce nuclear weapons and these are people who even voted for the treaty who are criticizing obama. mitt romney is out of mainstream and he's chosen to be there because he's following a group of people who got us into trouble in iraq and got us into trouble by breaking our appliances, by approving of torture and a whole bunch of other things that left the world, frankly, questioning the united states of america. barack obama has turned that around. and we should not go backwards. >> senator kerry, you said that he and his running mate had no experience. in fact, you said it's nothing but a record of dangerous blunders and that -- i've outlined a few specific policies, fewer than any other presidential team in presidential history. is the president -- you are one to help the prepper. is the president going to go after him tonig

an unprecedented natural disaster hitting the east coast of the united states. >> right. >> the new moderate mitt doesn't want to be seen saying, oh, the federal government -- why not privatize it? let people pay to be rescued. you know, what is the immoral here, reverend al? the united states is the richest country in the history of the world. bar none. what would be immoral would be for the federal government not to do whatever was necessary, you know, move the 82nd airborne if you have to, to rescue people. make sure they have food and water and make sure as many people as need to be moved to safety are moved to safety. >> richard, ryan's running mate scrapped the budget, tried to eliminate $10 million in funding and wants disaster aid offset by other cuts. how relevant is that now given the storm? >> that was the context for the response that romney gave himself where congressional republicans were just adding money to fema, no matter what the historical precedent was for both parties in terms of dealing with funding issues around fema. you know, it wasn't that long ago if anyone needs remind

, look at the vote that is going to be in massachusetts for president of the united states and you get a sense of just how bipartisan mitt romney was. he is going to lose massachusetts overwhelmingly because as the governor -- first of all, his record was all wrong and it was third worse in job creation so he's inventing his record but he's also inventing the bipartisanship. the legislators saw none of that. >> now, michelle, when you say that we were warned that he was going to move to the middle, the problem that he has is so many things remind people of who he was, like the infamous tape of him talking about 47%. so no matter how much he moves, he's got to continue to answer and be haunted by this tape. watch this. >> it's not elegantly stated, let me put it that way. i have a very effective campaign that's doing a good job. not everything i say is -- that's the real percent that people care about. i said something just completely wrong. >> so he went from, it wasn't said well to, it was completely wrong because he can't get away from people seeing him, himself saying, 47% of the co

introduced his dad today at an event. he complied that the president of the united states was an obstinate child during the debate. listen to this. >> me and my brothers were responsible for my dad doing so well. we were the ones that kept saying the same thing over and over. we say the same lie over and over and my-day-old learned then not to believe it. so while we didn't go through invite formal debate preparation, we did the real hard stuff. as a father he learned how to debate an obstinate child. >> i mean dana with mitt romney's son saying the president was like he and his brothers lying over and over again, a member of the family would have to defend that. he got -- isn't that risky to put family out there like that? >> well we've seen the risk of this before reverend. it was the romney sons the ones responsible for telling the world about shameeseamus the dog being strapped to the top of the car. themed to walk back several things. i think it's too convenient they're putting out this line that somehow there's been a change that the family is really in control

not shut up, a mean-spirited, rude, overbearing disrespectful vice president of the united states. >> i thought that joe biden came across like a guy that you meet at a cocktail party for some political event, an obnoxious drunk who is loud and boisterous and interrupts every conversation. >> anyone smell the fear in the air? joining me now is joe madison, nationally syndicated radio host of mornings with madison. joe, thanks for being here. >> i'm trying not to smile. >> i can't help it. it beats crying. they are talking about laughter. what does that tell you? >> look, it tells you that's the only thing they can hang their hat on. any time the most important thing you can say about your opponent in a debate is what he's wearing or how he looks means that you lost the debate on substance. reverend, just pray for me for a moment. joe biden opened up a can of whoop you know what and he enjoyed doing it. he cleaned his clock. and i think, quite honestly, one of the things we don't want to get distracted on because of their talking points about him smiling is, don't forget the real substan

appoint two wonderful women to the united states pup supreme court. >> this is serious. we could be talking about wiping out roe versus wade, we could be talking about a lot of the civil rights and voter rights. a lot of things that we have taken for granted in the last two generations could be at risk here, depending on who is put on that court. >> that's absolutely right, reverend. what is unique about this case is you have a whole generation of young women that didn't know the life before roe versus wade. and where do you want to take the country forward? unfortunately, romney increasingly looks like he wants to support half of the population. actually be in the doctor's office with you and at the same time we want to make sure that we kind of grim and wink at you and say we're going to get a binder full of women but don't support affirmative action. we need someone who is a straight talker and that's why it's so critical when we're talking about the supreme court in this case. >> congresswoman maloney, you sit in congress. one of your colleagues said what has got to rank amon

be a photo op but allowing the president of the united states to tour the devastated areas of new jersey would allow the president to know where resources need to be placed. chris christie is being governor as president obama is being president in chief, not a campaigner. there's no margin for christie to play party politics. he needs to get the job done as governor because as steve says, his job will be judged by how he handle this is hurricane. >> steve, how do you think the romney camp views this, who does need this and some other margins between now and next tuesday? >> no, they're at cross-purposes here. christie is about -- right now he's imperative to appeal to blue state voters and the romney imperative is to sort of make obama look bad and win over swing state voters. it's another example. we've seen it a few times this year with christie actually, the same dynamic. i can think back earlier when romney was trying to stone wall on taxes, and christie was put on national television and christie quickly realized he doesn't want to be making excuses for mitt romney not releasing his

florida and perhaps other states across the united states, we have political operatives working in back rooms to draw up voter suppression laws. it's unacceptable, it's unamerican, and there is something that people can do to fight back and that is to get out there and vote. >> now, you are nonpartisan and yet there are new laws set up to try and stop the league of women voters from registering voters of either party. i mean, this was something that was unthinkable. >> well, absolutely. and this finding came out in a deposition in one of the lawsuits that we were involved with, fighting the voter registration laws which, thankfully, was thrown out, those voter registration laws. it was fascinating, also, to see that the election was really wonderful to see the supervisors of election in the state of florida who stood up and were also opposing many of these rules, such as cutting the early voting days in half and requiring a much more extensive use of provisional ballots. so our supervisors of election who are both democratic and republican, independently elected by the citizens of their

-- they showed them the income equality that exists in the united states and that exists in sweden, which is a society and they said, which one of these is america and most people picked the swedish distribution. people don't realize how much the middle class has been hallowed out and how much the economic gains of the past three decades have gone to the people at the very, very top. and as sister simone said, i don't think americans want to live this way. and they offer three choices and say, which one is the kind of society that you'd like to live in and most people chose the even more egalitarian setup. i think the issue is that people don't really understand how divided the society has become. >> chrystia, when you look at this graph, it shows that income inequality has grown. 275% gain in incomes since 1979. the bottom, watch this, the bottom 20% have had only 18% in income gains. is it that we are in denial or is it that we are just unaware because this happened so recently to us? >> well, i think we are in denial and i also think, look, there is a very powerful rhetorical machine w

he has is he wants to be president of the united states. president's been president for four years. he's got to say what he's going to do in the next four. >> now, does the president have to try to find middle ground between confronting mr. romney without looking like he's being antagonistic and, quote, nonpresidential? how does he find that delicate balance, governor? >> i think that's what he was trying to find last time and it apparently didn't work. i saw the debate and i thought he did fine. i know the media doesn't think so. he needs to go after romney. romney is questionably qualified for president. his positions on defense are very unusual. his positions on the kind of rights for women are certainly out of the mainstream. and i think the president has to go after him. the president's going to defend american values in this debate here. and i think he needs to make mitt romney show he's either out of step or he doesn't seem to have any core principles. one of the two. >> i threw out romney lied throughout the last debate. i think that the vice president went after ryan. didn

as the president of the united states and i am telling you, david, come thursday morning, the entire race will change. >> is he overstating the case there or will the narrative change and if it will change, dana, which way will it change? it could change where there's no hope left at all for romney? >> i bet governor christie 10,000 bucks that that narrative is not going to be changed in such a manner. it is true that if romney is going to get back in this race, this is the time to do it. the first debate. the second and third debate, that's all nice. but this is the last chance that he has to win a first impression or second or third, which ever it is at this point. there is some promise for romney in the post abc polls, expectations are high. many more people think that obama will win this debate. the expectations are low for him. he really does. he doesn't just need to hold his own, needs to get in there and give people a reason why he looks and acts like a president in a better way than obama would. >> but michelle, there's so much doubt going that paul ryan, according to the national

a man run for the president of the united states, stand up in the first presidential debate, everyone says he won and he stands up and blatantly distort facts, six independent studies where all of these are republican operatives, a couple of them written by an adviser to the campaign. they are bloggers. i mean, this is the most arrogant display of honesty that i've ever seen in politics. >> it is. people have pointed out that there are not six independent studies, reverend al. there's these blog posts. i think there might be seven tweets, facebook posts and a man in times square with a sign that support romney. but that's how thin it is. he hasn't really been challenged by mainstream media. and this is fox. how embarrassing is it that fox isn't even listening to him any more and has felt like -- chris wallace feels like he has to come in and say, these things don't add up. >> when you say that the one independent study that joan is talking about, the tax policy center said it doesn't added a up. the one independent study does not agree that it adds up. >> right. >> and yet romney call

overturn roe v. wade? yes, i do. if i'm president of the united states, i will encourage pro-life policies. >> nia-malika? >> well, that, that is pretty much a highlight reel of mitt romney's positions in regard to women's health. in regards to abortion, he has, over the last couple of days, angered some social conservatives because he seems to have moved to the center of abortion and there isn't any legislation that would go to the top of his agenda in regards to abortion but there you have him talking about roe v. wade and promising to appoint supreme court justices that would likely seek to overturn roe v. wade. you have had democrats very much hit mitt romney hard in a lot of these swing states and i think in part that underscores and certainly exploits the gender gap that you see in those swing states. not only women, but i think men probably would have a problem with politicians talking about rape, discussing it as a political talking point, as a sort of abstract political idea rather than a real felt traumatic and tragic event that far too many women experience. and this is somethin

for the united states senate. it's not enough to tell me, you don't agree. it's having the courage to stand up and say what they said was wrong, simply wrong. >> laura? >> absolutely. you know, i think that it's not a liberal thing to say that what mourdock said and what he believes about rape victims is extreme. it is extreme compared to the majority of americans. even 75% of republicans believe that rape victims should have the option to end their pregnancies. and so for mitt romney to be afraid to come out and say what this guy said is wrong and i won't stand for it, i think it shows a real lack of leadership. >> now, let's remember now -- let's leave mourdock out there by himself. because i think the mourdock issue really exposes who romney and ryan are. look at their extreme policies on women's issues. they all want to overturn roe versus wade. they would support certain kinds of birth control. they want to defund planned parenthood. they oppose contraception coverage. irin, they are in lock step. romney, ryan, murdoch. >> they absolutely are. and i think what is happening, why the presid

, yes, the race is tightening but when we look at the poll averages in nine key swing states, president obama leads in five states. ohio, new hampshire, nevada, wisconsin. romney leads in three states. florida, colorado, north carolina, virginia is a tie. now, nbc news poll lit cal unit says if obama wins, just ohio, iowa, and wisconsin as he's currently ahead in those states, that that gets him over 270 electoral votes and he wins the white house. so, i mean, you almost get the perception that this is a lot closer than it is and i don't take granted for granted but we're not in panic zone, those that are with the president here. >> no, people shouldn't be in panic zoens. i've been hearing from friends in michigan and other states. friends in michigan want to go to ohio. that's what you want to have happen in the closing weeks of the campaign. you need that kind of enthusiasm from your folks who aren't just saying, he's five, six points up. i can go back to doing something else. you want to make sure that the folks are showing up and the president is doing his job because he's talking a
